The Wizard of Oz comes to New York

From my good friend, fellow pinball lover Eddie Cramer comes a little video he shot of the very first Wizard of Oz pinball machine from Jersey Jack being packed up and then put into Two Bits Retro Arcade in New York City. Allen (AKA Pinaholic) has been looking forward to this game for a very long time. He got the call from Jack that he would give him one of the prototype machines with the most recent code and they packed it up and took the game to Two Bits. Right now the machine isn't using the final board set that will be added in when they get them in next month. It's only a matter of time till they get out into more places so more folks can enjoy it.

I'm going to try to make it into Two Bits, hopefully this weekend to take another tour video to show all of the new changes. Allen and Perry added in a lot more pinball machines and they've been doing good business. Also for two weeks Allen ran both The Wizard of Oz against a limited Hulk edition of The Avengers. According to Allen even though Wizard of Oz isn't anywhere near to running on final code, WoZ was the hands down highest earning machine at the bar, Allen told me, "It wasn't even close." That's just at one bar, I'm waiting to see how WoZ will do on location against other games, we've only got a few more weeks to find out!
